Post Star Wars: The Force Unleashed *May Contain Spoilers*
Is anybody else going to go see it?

I'm a big enough fan to have seen all of the movies and played a few games and read a couple books, but I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan. I definitely want to see it, but it's not one of those things that I'm losing my mind over.

My best friend in the other hand has the Jedi symbol tattooed on his arm and bought a robe to wear while waiting in line. He bought an extra ticket, so I'll be at the first showing in my area.

Thats not a concern for me. I really like what they've done with the Marvel movies, so I have faith they can at [i]least[/] make the better than the prequels.

It felt like a Star Wars movie, which is basically the best compliment it could receive.

I had a few criticisms but they were minor. The biggest one I had was I wanted MORE. At least another half hour, mainly for character development and relationship-building. I won't go into everything here because of spoilers. I wasn't disappointed.

I saw it. It was pretty good, but I had some issues.

I didn't like the lack of a background story. I mean, HTF did the new evil 'force' come to be when they were essentially vanquished in Return of the Jedi?

Wasn't really a fan of the new villain. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the subsequent years.

Also, I will not try to spoil it for others, but, the two protagonists seem to be a missed matched pair. Moreover, I was confused by how they seemed to be a position to utilize what was available to them so easily.

I know exactly what you mean in your last paragraph, Hardcore. I have theories, so I I figure Disney has plans to explain things better in the future. I really feel like all of the questions we had leaving the theater were intentionally left unaddressed, but I could be giving Abrams too much credit.

Same here. I've been a pretty big fan since 1977. I'm one of the few that enjoyed EPI-EPIII. But this movie felt like, home. It felt like I was reunited with a long lost friend. What I really like is there was no feeling that they overused CGI. Most of the scenes were filmed on location (or at least it felt like it). Yes, I wanted more. I guess we'll have to wait for EPVIII.

I enjoyed the movie, it was a fun 2.5 hours but it did have flaws. I didn't really care for the new political environment that Abrams decided upon. Something similar to what Timothy Zahn had in Heir to the Empire would have been ideal.

I was a huge fan as a kid. The prequels were a huge let down.

Finally saw episode 7 and feel a bit lukewarm. I loved the first 45 minutes. I think many of the new protagonists are great. They young lady who played Rey, in particular, is a terrific actor, IMO. Surprisingly (to me), once the old characters started showing up, it felt a lot less interesting and the narrative lost its way.

I thought the new enemy was pretty solid until he took off his mask. From then on, he was terrible.

There were several chase scenes that were especially well handled IMO. I loved the first flight of the Millennium Falcon.

I left feeling pretty hopeful that the next installment will be very good. The new actors (with the exception of Kylo Ren) are great, IMO, and I like the new characters and want to know more about their narrative arcs. I think the director felt obliged to reconnect with fans that had been disappointed by the prequels, thus the many nostalgic moments and inclusion of old characters. The next one will be more of what I'm looking for.

I thought it was pretty good but have to agree with the Kylo Ren sentiment. I thought he came off a little wimpy. I also wasn't a fan of his lightsaber, when I first saw it in the previews I thought it was a nice change but it didn't really work in the movie for me.

I'm going to edit the title to indicate this thread may contain spoilers. I think the movie has been out long enough that people can discuss.

I'm glad they're bringing back the walkers. I had one as a kid (it was actually my cousin's and he gave it to me when he got older). That thing was pretty big for a toy. I was more into GI Joe but I had a few Star Wars stuff thanks to him.
